At Form we believe a holistic approach to health and wellbeing is vital. However, we know this isn’t always easy. Information we are provided with online is ever-changing, leaving us confused as to whether what we are eating really is good for us or whether we have been heavily influenced by those with vested interests in new products/fads. Ensuring that we have the most up-to-date and factual resources and information can be hard, so we have developed a new approach helping you to simplify every element of your health and wellbeing.
Form 360 takes you back to basics, taking 4 key elements: Mind, Body, Soul and Nutrition. Each week we will highlight 4 key thoughts/actions to help you to nurture each of these aspects of your health and wellbeing, ensuring you can make small steps of progress every week. We believe that every week should start on a high, creating new resolutions for ourselves and forever building and strengthening good habits that allow us to form a healthy and happy lifestyle.
Remember: it takes 21 days to make a habit and 21 days to break habit.
This week we focus on 4 simple ideas to get you started:
With May just a few days away, it seems like the perfect time to review those new year’s resolutions we all made with the best intentions a couple of months ago. We all know how easy it is to make those resolutions and how easy it is to quickly fall back into the same routine, sometimes only after a few days! Especially if those targets you set yourself are so big that instead of tackling them head-on, you have buried your head in the sand. Don’t worry, we still have the majority of the year left to jump back on the waggon and power through to the end of 2017 with our targets reached. The best way to make sure you reach those goals? Break them down into smaller, more manageable chunks. Doing just one small thing each day towards a big goal is the best way of staying focused and ensuring that you reach your targets.
Stretch. Starting each day with the simple Cat-Cow yoga stretch is the best way to reawaken your spine after a long rest. This is especially good if you find yourself sat at a desk all day, when it is easy to get a stiff neck or back.
This week has been a busy week for Form as we have the Manchester Yoga Show coming up next month. So, to help us focus, we have been drinking lots of Sage tea, which is both nutritious and delicious! Sage tea not only aids concentration, perfect for a busy work day, but it also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It can also help with digestion, fevers and colds. Get the kettle on!
Bank Holiday is finally here! A long weekend provides the perfect opportunity for a little day trip somewhere new. Travel is great for the soul, the fresh air and new surroundings give you space to think, be creative and reflect on your daily life. Take a hike around a local nature spot, take a picnic, even some champagne if you’re feeling in summery mood! Take in the new sights and smells and breathe in the fresh air.
